    OVERVIEW

    Electromagnetic sensing and imaging techniques are essential in various fields, ranging from radar systems to medical diagnostics. Understanding such techniques, starting from the theoretical bases and exploring the most advanced applications, is fundamental to design and use the related electronic systems.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course provides skills on electromagnetic sensing and diagnostics techniques, with reference both to the implementation aspects (theoretical, hardware, numerical / software), and to their use in different applicative fields.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course provides skills on electromagnetic sensing and diagnostic systems and techniques, with particular reference to: radar systems for surveillance and monitoring; ground penetrating radar; X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging; microwave imaging and diagnostics; electrical impedance tomography. Both operating principles and implementation aspects of these techniques are covered by the course, as well as their use in different application areas (also with practical exercises). The goal is to enable students to know how to design and use electromagnetic sensors and diagnostic systems.
